Sikadur®-31 CF Rapid


2-part thixotropic epoxy adhesive

Sikadur®-31 CF Rapid is a moisture tolerant, thixotropic, structural two part
adhesive and repair mortar, based on a combination of epoxy resins and special
fillers, designed for use at temperatures between +5°C and +20°C.


As a structural adhesive and mortar for:
 Concrete elements
 Hard natural stone
 Ceramics, fiber cement
 Mortar, Bricks, Masonry
 Steel, Iron, Aluminium
 Wood
 Polyester, Epoxy
 Glass
As a repair mortar and adhesive:
 Corners and edges
 Holes and void filling
 Vertical and overhead use
Joint filling and crack sealing:
 Joint and crack arris / edge repair

Characteristics /

Sikadur®-31 CF Rapid has the following advantages:
 Easy to mix and apply
 Suitable for dry and damp concrete surfaces
 Very good adhesion to most construction materials
 High strength adhesive
 Thixotropic: non-sag in vertical and overhead applications
 Hardens without shrinkage
 Different coloured components (for mixing control)
 No primer needed
 High initial and ultimate mechanical strength
 Good abrasion resistance
 Impermeable to liquids and water vapour
 Good chemical resistance
